Liver and Leave 'er

I'm having an ultrasound scan of my liver this morning, because I'm still feeling sick with the symptoms of hepatitis a.

I'm tired of having this illness, and that gives me increased respect for Robb's patience since his spinal cord injury. He has a far better attitude than I ever could hope to have.

Good Luck with the scan, Lisa! Keep us all informed of the results - we'll be thinking of you...

are livers really as high up the abdomen as that illustration suggests? i always thought it was lower, kinda nestled behind the intestines or something.

Tucked up inside and slightly under my rib cage. Weird to feel it so clearly as it cramps.

Thinking of you and hope all goes well.

Hey, is there something you need to study in order to pass your liver test?

I used to have gastrointerological problems (whew!Say that 3 times fast!) and would feel the cramping in both my upper and lower GI tract. Talk about being way to in touch with my body. Stabbing cramps really SUCK no matter where they occur.

I wonder if following the brat diet is good for you? Bananas, rice, apples and tea. What sort of foods CAN you eat? At least be glad the human liver is the only human organ that can completely regenerate itself, unlike my sense of humor.

BRAT diet is Bananas, Rice, Applesauce and Toast - just in case you decide to give it a whirl. Tea is yummy, but not on the diet! :)

Ach... no wonder you've been so puny and feeling so bad. I missed this post.

Sorry you've been so puny. I hope your liver gets the loving it needs to heal.
